New Cards, new art, and new possibilities for GROO to run rampant through your town. If the basic game is just too... well, basic, get this 55-card expansion to add more chaos to the game. Also allows you to add an additional 2 victims, err... players into the game.

If you enjoy the Groo basic set then the expansion is an excellent addition; my partner and I LOVE this game and have spent many a night playing it together. The artwork is good; there's plenty of play (I actually think it's just as good with two players as with a group). The expansion adds more characters, more turning points (like event cards) and creates more activity... whereas occasionally with just the basic set things can get dry... (tho not enough for us to stop playing)....
To be honest, I've actually forgotten which cards came with the basic set of cards in Groo: the Game, and which came with the expansion; they're all long since shuffled together. This suggests that not only do I have amnesia, but also that the expansion for this game integrates seamlessly with its predecessor.
Ostensibly, Groo: the Expansion allows you to play Groo with up to six players. I have actually played it with nine and it still worked, though it was quite a while between turns (and because you do stuff out of your turn too it's often difficult to remember whose turn it is). The expansion is also fine for as few as two players - it just takes a long time to go through the deck.
Some part of me still remembers that the few games I played before getting the expansion were a little too basic, so on that shining endorsement I heartily recommend Groo: the Expansion!
